Product Description

Product Description

David Bates leads La Nuova Musica in a pair of contrasting settings of Psalm 109. Handel s masterful and ambitious HWV 282 was penned in 1707 during a youthful visit to Italy. Vivaldi s vivid and economical RV 807 (his third Dixit Dominus) was long mistakenly attributed to Baldassare Galuppi; it probably dates from the early 1730s. Rounding out the programme is Vivaldi s dazzling motet for solo voice, In furore iustissimae irae, featuring soprano Lucy Crowe.

Review

'sensitive playing from the continuo team matched by countertenor soloist Christopher Lowrey s command and understanding [Virgam virtuti Handel Dixit Dominus]. --Violet Green, Early Music Review April 2013

the 15-strong choir packs plenty of punch ... A metaphorical bridge between the two psalms is provided by Lucy Crowe s stratospheric virtuosity in Vivaldi s motet in furore iustissimae irae; the frenetic first aria s embellishments will dazzle many but I particularly appreciated Crowe s gorgeous soft singing in the slower Tune meus fletus . --David Vickers, Gramophone May 2013

The third item is a showy motet for solo soprano with strings [in furore iustissimae irae] sung with warmth and athleticism by Lucy Crowe. David Bates directs all with liveliness and a fluent feeling for style. --Nicholas Anderson, Classical Music Magazine June 2013

I enjoyed both parts, but preferred Vivaldi's version. Normally I am passionate for Handel. However,in this case, my applause was restrained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Close but no cigar 19 May 2013
By Arnaldo Dines - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This new Harmonia Mundi recording with conductor David Bates and La Nuova Musica ensemble has some pretty big shoes to fill. Just ask any SACD aficionado and they'll tell you that the label's previous Handel outings with Richard Egarr and the Academy of Ancient Music reached musical stratosphere. And the good news here is that the bulk of the project - the two versions of Dixit Dominus by Vivaldi and Handel - comes out brilliantly. There's a contagious vibrancy to the performance, from conductor to soloists to ensemble, which no listener at home could possibly be immune to. And in terms of the engineering, the spatial presentation is simply stunning, with the soloists apparently singing from within your living room.

But then we come to the filler, Vivaldi's In furore iustissimae irae, sandwiched between the main works. First and foremost, Lucy Crowe's voice seems too powerful for a baroque setting. While no one would mistake her for some Wagnerian Fräulein, more so because of her judicious use of vibrato, I tend to prefer Handel and Vivaldi seasoned with a more delicate sauce. Compounding the problem rather exponentially, she keeps turning her head from side-to-side, resulting in an irritating stereo panning effect, with quick shifts all the way from the 10 to the 2 o'clock position and back. Still, rather than blame her alone, I wonder if a bit of direction from the production crew and more space between her and the microphone, might have ameliorated the situation.

Fortunately, these issues are absent from the Dixit Dominus, with perfect placement of all soloists and choir. My only quibble there is that the accompanying ensemble sounds dryish in comparison to the vocals. It feels like the musicians were an afterthought during the recording sessions, unworthy of a couple of extra spot mikes to capture the acoustical space around them. Still, the ensemble's coherence alone would make this a 5 star release, were it not for the disappointing and somewhat unnecessary filler.
